with Philip Carr-Gomm, creator of The Druidcraft Tarot
​The Tarot is well-known for its use as an oracle that can tell us of the potentials and risks the future may bring. But the Tarot can also be used to help us transform - to help us grow and change and become of more use to others and ourselves.

In this multi-media course that uses video, audio and text, Tarot teachers Philip Carr-Gomm and Steve Hounsome show you how you can use this ancient system for self-transformation, working with the Major Arcana as archetypes to enrich the soul, with the Court Cards as keys to developing the personality, and with the pip cards of the Minor Arcana offering insights into the ways our souls and personalities can work together and express themselves in the world.

Seekers Quest (003).jpg

This Course gives you the chance to follow your own, personal ‘Journey of the Fool’. The Major Arcana cards of the Tarot are traditionally seen as a journey to personal enlightenment, awareness and completion. In this sense each card illustrates a lesson or stage of learning and experience on that Journey.


This Course follows that structure, using a variety of exercises, techniques and guided meditations for each card. Each persons’ experience is unique to them
and you will receive detailed feedback and comments on each lesson, utilising
Steve’s 40 years’ experience with the Tarot.


The Major Arcana of the Tarot gives us worldly, personal and spiritual knowledge like nothing else and through this Course you can realise your own view and experience of the Universe and your place in it.  You do not even need any previous knowledge or experience of the Tarot at all.


This is a Tarot Course unlike any other. Through it you can discover the treasure that awaits you when you complete your own Quest.




Past Life Course Pic_edited.jpg

This is a unique course that offers you the chance to learn and tell ‘The Story of Your Soul’, by discovering and charting your Past Lives. Taking the position that we are a Soul within a different body in each lifetime, this Course enables you to discover the purpose of both your previous and current lifetimes, even taking a look at a resulting future lifetime. This Course can then be likened to reading your own Akashic Record, from cover to cover, on which much work is done.

The study of our Past Lives, whilst it is a fascinating subject, has the purpose and intent of allowing you to realise and integrate the meaning and lessons of each life, into the current life and self. This can result in you becoming a more complete individual, fully aware of why you are here at this time and what you need to learn and achieve through your life. Through this Course you can become more whole and in control of your destiny.

There are many aspects of interest and use that Past Life work can bring. Apart from the discovery of the purpose of your life, relationships with loved ones, successful and ‘failed’, easy and difficult, past and present, can also be revealed. Through Past Life work, we can come to know who it is we have lived with before, in what capacity and why. In this way, you can achieve understanding, progress and fulfilment of relationships with people in your current life.
